The Wizard of Oz celebrates 75 years with I-MAX 3D re-release

The Wizard Of Oz is celebrating its 75th Anniversary this week with an I-MAX 3D re-release.  

It took 16 months to re-create the 1939 classic with 21st century technology.

Based on the classic book by Frank L. Baum, The Wizard Of Oz is a dazzling motion picture achievement featuring unforgettable songs, scenery, and costumes.

The film had 5 academy award nominations and Judy Garland was awarded a special Oscar for her outstanding performance.

You can buy tickets online for the first show on Friday at Showplace Cinemas East.

The 3D version of The Wizard Of Oz will be in theaters for about a week.
